EVENING STAR. LWAl INTELLIGENCE OUR WEEKLY. Get the weekly Star of to day and read the capital stories headed " The Smnnltn Care," bj Charles Dickona, and 44 The Family," by X 8 Arthur There is also in this number the aaaal quantity and variety of Washington new* and gossip, local, personal, political, and Rneral news, poetry, fun, sentiment, etc.,etc. ice, fl 25 per year; single nambera 3 centi Tax Metropolitan Straw FLontrwo Mill Our readers will hare noticed the improved appearance latterly of the opeu ground to the wMt of Twelfth street in the neighborhood of Ohio avenue, heretofore covered with puddtot cf green water, and sacred to geeae, and guano, but now, as if by a magician s wand, convert ed into a business quarter, all alive with the movements of workmen, the buzz of ma chinery, and the procession of vehicles con vying wheat and corn, flour and meal, to ar.d from the extensive 11 )?ricg establishment of Messrs Coltman and Duncanaon, which has just gone into operation at that point. The main buildirg of this establishment looms up, a prominent feature of the neighbor hood. It is of brtck. four stories high, forty two feet wide, and forty seven deep. Attached to it is a two-story brick building, the upper part of which is ocsupied by water-tanks and a ahop for repairs, and the lower part as the engine-room Entering the latter, we find a superb high pressure engine from the manufactory of Ellis A Brother, of sixty-live or seventy horse power, irith a cylinder cf sixteen inch diameter and three feet stroke ; and passing along we come upon the primary motive power in the shape of three immense boilers forty feet in length, and three feet in diameter Stopping to con rem a moment with the sweating athletic fire man, as he busies himself feeding huge lumps of Cumberland coal to the ravenous furnaces, be tells us that the consumption of coal is now about four tons per day, Lut will be lads as the machinery gets in easy running trim Ketuming to the main building where men are pouring corn into a large Fairbank's scale '? feeder," and taking a pinch, from the belts, of the sweet-smelling corn-meal batween our fingers to test its quality, we gamp some stairs to where six run of burr-stones?foor far wheat and two for corn ?are in operation, under the experienced superintendence of the miller? Mr J Smith, late of the Alexandria and Georgetown mills Mr Smith, who is a wholesome, ruddy look ing personage?just our heart \dml of a mil ler? takes us over the building, up stairs and d'lwn stairs, and into all manner of odd cor ners. and nmong. t all sorts of gearings, belts, and curious looking machinery, to show us the virions ingenious appliances and improve ments for cleaning and grinding wheat and corn. The mill, \?e aro told, hivS capabilities for turning out rmo two hundred barrels cf flour per day, and it is intended to furnish a very superior articlc, indeed. Our idea is, after examining the premises and th* samples turn ed out, that the exncctations of tbo entcrpri sing proprietors will be fully realized, and that tho flour and meal bearing tho Metropol itan Mills brand will be esteemed as ir.di?pcn sibles by our merchant*, shop keepers, an 1 citizens Excursion to the Great Falls ?The Highlanders have hit the nail oa the head in going up river instead of down In view of the many attractions of river and mountain seenery in the Great Falls neighborhor>d, our wonder is that excursionists do not of:ener seek for good times in that direction. We do not believe there is on the American continent finer sccnery than is to be met on the Potomac abovo Georgetown, where the noble river skirts the abrupt precipices of the Virgiria shore All the wny up to the Great Falls, in deed, the spectator is presented with a suc cession of most enchanting views Arrived at that point if there is anything in nature which ean exceed the Falls in grandeur, it is the sublime white perch caught fresh from the water, and cooked on the spot! Then there are romantic walks for the young lovers and poetic folks; and a3 for matter of fast peo ple, why they can gratify themselves by con templating the most extensive wator power (Niagara excepted) in all creation! Some times young folks are not averse to dancing on these excursions, and to provide for just euch a contingency, Esputa's Band has been secured. The very thought of such an excur sion makei us young again The At rrMX Session of this Washington Academies aid Schools ?That momentous time, in anticipation of which ?o many little hearts are beating high with hope and ambi tion, the Fall term," is now rapidly ^np pro aching, and all good boys and girl3*aro doubtless hunting up their grammar?, alge bras, euclid*. dictionaries, and all tho other requisite books, and are posting themselves up in advance for the coming tasks In our columns to-day will be found a large number of advertisements of schools and their time of opening The city of Washington presents many advantages f?>r the training of youth The rchools are of a high character; tha city is undoubtedly the healthiest, all things con sidered. in the Union?indeed its singular ex emption for years from prevailing epidemics, Korth and South is notorious; it is a quiet rural city, with nothing of the uproar, dissi pation an-l feverish excitement of a commer cial city The many valuable libraries and ecientific collections to be found here, the fcmithsonian Institute lectures, the genial and refined society of the place, and a variety of desirabilities contribute to make this city a auperior educational point. We recommend to our readers the schools advertised In to day's paper as presenting equal if not supe rior advantages to any similar schools in the country Ceiminal Oi rt?Tuk Trialop Sullivan. Mr. Key was followed yesterday by Mr. Mar tin for defense and to day Mr. Morgan closed for defense The District Attorney being too unwell to make a closing address, the case w.os given to the iury a1*>ut noon to-day upon the conclusion of Mr Morgan's plea The jury, after a few minutes absence, returnei a vordict cf " not guilty." Much feeling was manifested in the court room upon the rendition of the verdiet, and the k interview between Sullivan and his wife was effecting in the extreme ? On Monday, the ease of Eggleaton, charged 'with the murder of Kohrman will bo taken up. Gavin asd S* all -La?t night officer Dough oATty of the Fifth DiBtrirt police returned from ^3biiadclphia, having in his custody James Kuavin and John Sm ill who are charged with the robbery of Mr9. Milia's boardiug house in the Fifth \\ ard The prisoners were Wrought to this city in irons, and safely lodged in the county jail The police were so exact in their description cfthe j arty, that they were recog nized immediately on their arrival at the de pot in Philadadelphi t by officer Taggart, who made tho arrest All the clothing, and a con siderable portion of the jewelry have been re covered. Gavin and Small are both young men, neither oyer twenty-three years of ege. The Jackson Democratic Association.? We understand that on Monday evening nezt this as'r^iation meet at their hall to clejt a president Thai to the regular night fjr that ?leeti'.n. We understand, further, that Dan iel Katcliffc, E-q , their present president, de ciiuea a re election. It is probable that the meeting will be very large, and that there will be two, three, or more candidates ;n the field All member* of the association should by all means attend. ?? New Order.?Tbo Ccntro Market space has been so crowded of l.ite by bay and wood carts and wagnna, that it has become necessary fur the Mayor to assign atanda for them in or "der to preserve a sufficient eirringe way on Pennsylvania avenue. Several officers under the direction of the chief of police wcro at I tending to this duty this morning The stands jusigned are on Louisiana avenue The law relative to obstructions in the streets will be Mfmad. ? All Tue literary newspapers for thiswoek have been roceived, and aro now for sale at Jshillington's. Also all the magazines for Sep tember, among which be has font us the fol lowing : Putnam's Mag uino, Knickerbocker, Panorama of Life and Literature, liou'eholj Word*, and Mrs Stephens's Illustrated M ig arine ?all abounding with valuable and at tractive matter as usual. ? National Triatei ? Messri. Kunkel A Co , with commendable enterprise, hart en gaged new talent for the National board?, and to-night the charming Mrs. Little Weston Da venport will appear as 41 Juliet;" the favorite, O. C. Boniface, as " Romeo," and the versa tile A. 11 Davenport as 44 Mercatio." In the afterpieoe (Eton Boy) both Mr. and Mrs. Da venport will appear. Stovm, Orates and Hocsk Fuhiushiwo Articles ? The establishment of C Wood ward A Son affords the finest possible variety of these articles, and the well established rep utation of these gentlemen for fair and reason able dealing is a guarantee that those desiring such articles cannot do better than to pur chase of them Tbeir new stove, grate and furnishing house is No 318 Pennsylvania ave nue Cbittuu Market.?The stands were all oc cupied this morning, as is usual on the last market day of the week The provisions were of exoellent quality and arranged to attract the attention of purchasers. The prices have not materially changed during the past week. The regulations are strictly enforced. Passbh for Colored Persons ?Colored persons who havo business out after 10 o'clock p m are generally aware that to make a pass good for one month it has been usual to have it endorsed by the Captain of the Guard. The ordinary pass from one point to another, good for the night only, may, it is understood, be given by any respectable white citizen. Ordinatio* ?The Interesting ceremony of ordaining^and installing a ruling elder accord ing to the forms of the Presbyterian church, will occur on Sabbath evening in the Fifth street chureh. Col. Hutchins, formerly of Florida, but for a few years past a resident of this city, has lately received 4ue cordial and unanimous vote of the church to take this of Geo. Tiiat cow, pastured In the Smithsonian grounds seems to be having a good time amongst the rare and delicate shrub* selected and planted with so much care by tho lamented Downing. We can fancy the shade of the de parted contemplating the havoc made by the brute not quite approvingly. Marcle Mantles?Porsons who aro fin ishing houses, and wishing to place in thera good mantles, would do well no doubt, by at tending the pale adverted to take place in the old Star building, D street, near the cor ner of Twelfth street, on Tuesday afternoon next. ?? Declined.?Mr. Wm II. Donohoyesterday declined the tax clerkship tendered to him some time ago, in order to enter upon the du ties of a less arduous and equally profitable ]>osition elsewhere. Onlt 121 cents for a eorrect likeness of Puchanan, Fillmoro and Fremont. Sold by t'10 agent, A.

Jj->uis Flinikome, drunk and disorderly, work house thirty days The term at the guard bouse is Justice M .rrell's by rule; but he being sick and out of the city, tho duties have been attended to by Justice llollingshead. POLITIC AT. ITEMS Tho Fourth Ward Fremont and Dayton C!ub of Brookly, Headquarters at the Brook lyn Museum, hoist tho national emblem with tha Union down. Mrs Jane G Swis'holm, tho he femalo who, in lf>51, duzu*ted the nation by her slanders on Daniel Webster, calling him a deb&ucht ? and a drunkard, and comparing Mm to a large, thick-necked, volumtuous "r'gger," is out in the Tribune with a long letter of sympathy for Charlo3 Sumner. The Pennsylvanian Gays : The Fremont pa pers are re-publishing with exultation the nurses of the four Fromont men, Taylor, Youngman, Duffield, and W0II3, upon the Pennsylvania Fillmore Electoral Tickct, ar.d a number of Fremont papers openly assert that thore are a number of other Fremont mrn upon the same ticket. Immense preparations are everywhere be ing made for the grand gathering of tho De mocracy and Old Line Whigs at the Tippo cnnoe batMe ground on the 3d of September. Large numbers of K*ntuckians will be present, and to accommodato all who wi~h to attend, the New Albany and Salem railroad will be prep ired to run extra trains and will ticket pasjengers through at halt price.?Lonuvil/e Courier. At a recent political meeting in Genoa, Cayuga county, one of the speakers, a butcher and market man, nam^d linger', said among otherthiegs, " your Col Fremont atodog!" Whereupon a voice replied, 4'he never ate half as much dog as the most of the people in this room !" " Prove it! ' exclaimed the ora tor. llero a well known man ar<>se, and with a victorious smile rejoined, ,41 should not think you would ask any proof of a man who has made sausages for you as long aa I have!'' It is needless to add that this was a clincher, anl that the point of Mr. Roger's speech was rather bluntod. For the last twenty five years Mr. Buchanan has ranked among the ablest statesmen in the United States This position has been award ed to him even by his political opponents In 1644 Daniel Webster mado a speech at Fan euil Hall, Boston, in favor of the election of General Taylor. In commencing it he said ; 44 Gentlemen, 1 saw this morning a speech delivered lately in Washington by tho present Secretary of State, Mr. Buchanan, a gentle man who is amoLg tho first, if not the very first of bis party, in point of character and standing in the country. Differing from most of the Bentiments in bis speech, I ftill do its author the credit and justice to say that it is a manly speech." JfT t Fasts, and Vests, Dress Suits, Business Suits.
